Project Description:

Falkirk Football Club is a Scottish professional association club, the club was founded in 1876 and competes in the Scottish Championship as a member of the Scottish Professional Football League. In 2013, Falkirk F.C. appointed GreenFields to install a woven product- GreenFields MX at Falkirk Stadium.

The woven synthetic surface uses a patented weaving technique which enables a higher density, higher resilience, less compaction and a more equal ball roll than traditional tufting techniques. The surface has been specifically designed for football with a pile height of 50mm compared with the longer 60mm which has been used for mixed football and rugby use. It is fully FIFA two star compliant and conforms to the rules laid out by the SPL and SFL. The pitch is one of the first new generation of woven synthetic turf systems to be installed in the UK.
